With 18 Ivy League titles, Dartmouth football has won more conference championships than any other member of the “Ancient Eight.” Dating back to 1881, Dartmouth boasts a proud tradition of success on the gridiron. Thirteen players and coaches have been inducted in the College Football Hall of Fame, including legendary coaches Earl “Red” Blaik and Bob Blackman, and former NFL Man of the Year Reggie Williams ’76. Over 40 Dartmouth football players have played in the National Football League, and 226 have been selected as First Team All-Ivy performers.
